Technical Bulletin: Issue re-adding removed nodes to your Platform

Published: October 30, 2017

Problem

In Platform versions 6.5.2 and later, when removing Windows nodes through the SOC, the Platform will not remove the MSI definition from the node. This will prevent the node from being re-added to your Platform or to a different Platform.

If you plan to make the removed node part of an Apprenda Platform again, you must remove the MSI definition before adding the node.

Resolution

To remove the MSI definition from a removed Windows node,

  1. log into the node and open Uninstall or change a program under Programs and Features
  2. uninstall the Apprenda Windows Container
